Elisabeth Moss reprises her role as June Osborne and Offred in the upcoming forth season of 'The Handmaid's Tale.' The season premiere is April 28 on Hulu.

The anticipated fourth season of the critically-acclaimed series "The Handmaid's Tale" highlights Hulu's list of shows and movies that will become available to stream in April.

Based upon Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel with the same title, "The Handmaid's Tale" tells the story of dystopian life in the Republic of Gilead through the character of June Osborne.

Played by Elisabeth Moss, Osborne is captured and turned into a handmaid in the totalitarian society that was once the United States. Given the name Offred, Osborne struggles to get by as a reproductive surrogate for Commander Fred Waterford and his wife Serena Joy Waterford.

Moss's character in the fourth season "strikes back against Gilead as a fierce rebel leader, but the risks she takes bring unexpected and dangerous new challenges," according to Hulu.

Moss's portrayal of Osborne has earned the actress both an Emmy and a Golden Globe.

Since it first aired in 2017, "The Handmaid's Tale" has won 15 Emmys. It was the first show produced by Hulu to win a major award and the first program on a streaming service to win the Emmy for Outstanding Series.

The fourth season will debut April 28 on the streaming platform. The show has already been renewed by Hulu for a fifth season.

Hulu will also premiere a pair of noteworthy original documentaries in April.

"WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Dollar Unicorn," explores the rise and fall of the commercial real estate company know for operating co-working spaces. The documentary debuts April 2. An investigative series titled "Sasquatch," which looks into a purported Bigfoot attack in Northern California in 1993 that killed three men, is set to premiere April 20.

Among the titles leaving Hulu next month include the popular 1990 romantic comedy "Pretty Woman," starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, and the hit 1980 comedy film "9 to 5," starring Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.

Here are all the movies and shows coming to Hulu in April 2021.
